The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

When: Feb. 21-26 2017

Adapting a novel for the stage is a challenge in the best circumstances. But when dealing with Simon Stephens's adaptation of Mark Haddon's best-selling 2003 novel, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, the National Theatre's creative team, including director Marianne Elliott (War Horse), were tasked with making the mind of an adolescent mathematic genius with a spectrum disorder visible onstage as he navigated multiple mysteries—and coming of age—in a bewildering world. They succeeded, conquering the West End (with seven Olivier Awards in 2013) and Broadway (with five Tony Awards two years later). Variety's Marilyn Stasio termed the spectacle "Cirque du Soleil with brains" and Ben Brantley of The New York Times praised "a production that retunes the way [we] see and hear." —Byron Woods
